I have here a selection of cotton and linen tote shopping bags. Each bag is made from top quality cotton or linen fabric ( depending on print ), and they have long carry handles ideal to ware from the shoulder, some of the handles are made from the same cotton fabric, others are made from 100% cotton webbing. All bags are unlined, they have been stitched and overlocked to give a clean finish, and they have sugar bag corners to create a gusset. These bags are great eco friendly shopping bags and can be carried in your handbag when you go shopping.
Please choose you bag from the list below and let me know at the checkout which bag you would like.

All bags are washable at 30 degrees, line dry and warm iron, do not tumble dry, do not bleach.
All of my sewing is carried out in a pet and smoke free environment in my home based work studio

All bags are photographed in natural daylight to convey the true colour, however due to monitor settings colours may vary.

When plastic carrier bags became less available I decided to do my bit to help shoppers and the environment by making cotton / linen shopping bags that are strong, lightweight, and stylish.
Do your bit to stop the plastic carrier bag land fill.
